It tackles both the symptoms and root causes of terrorism and extremism while fully respecting and protecting human rights in line with law and international practice.Far from being what some Western politicians or media outlets called “concentration camps,” the training and education centers serve as a fresh starting point for trainees to emancipate their minds, acquire professional skills and improve their future prospects.Vocational education and training have proved an effective tool in fighting terrorism and extremism.No terrorist incidents have occurred in Xinjiang for three years. Local people have gained a stronger sense of security and happiness. And the region has attracted a soaring number of tourists, with nearly 200 million in the first 10 months of 2019, up 43 percent year on year.These changes have been witnessed first-hand by journalists and diplomats from different countries who visited Xinjiang over the past year.After visiting vocational education and training centers in Xinjiang and talking with trainees face-to-face, they have gained a better understanding of the urgency, necessity, legitimacy and rationality of carrying out the measure.At the global level, Chinas efforts to end terrorism in Xinjiang have won increasing recognition and support.In March this year, the 46th session of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) adopted a resolution commending Chinas efforts in providing care to its Muslim citizens.In July, ambassadors from more than 50 countries to the UN Office in Geneva co-signed a letter to the president of the UN Human Rights Council and High Commissioner for Human Rights, praising China for its respect and protection of human rights in fighting terrorism and de-radicalization.These actions have shown the broad support of the international community on the education and training efforts in Xinjiang. Defamatory and baseless accusations brought by some countries against China are a fools errand and will not garner support.var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Wen Ying, Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9638253;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingChinas academic organization of human rights condemns U.S. House passage of Xinjiang-related billChina Islamic Association slams U.S. House approval of Xinjiang-related billWe RecommendSiberian tigers play in snow in NE China
